Class 8 truck sales hit September slump

Posted: October 7, 2016

COLUMBUS, IN – A mere 13,900 Class 8 vehicle orders were booked in North America this September, according to ACT Research.

“Owing to September’s dubious distinction as the weakest net order month of the year, seasonal adjustment boosts the month’s intake to 16,100 units,” said Steve Tam, ACT’s vice president. “At 28% below September 2015’s intake, it remains crystal clear that truckers are still struggling to balance excess freight hauling capacity in the context of anemic freight growth.”
